Interface to the Janelia Elf.

Project description

This Python package (elfcommander) creates a class named ElfCommander to communcate with and control the Janelia Elf. The Elf uses two hardware control devices, the mixed_signal_controller modular_client, and the bioshake_device. The mixed_signal_controller both switches the valves and reads the analog signals from the cylinder hall effect sensors. The bioshake_device controls the heater/shaker.
